Artists like Run DMC, Ashanti, Doug E.

Melissa Mc Carthy Dishes In On Her Weight

“Bridesmaids” star Melissa Mc Carthy discusses how she was focused on her appearance in her early adulthood, but how that changed when she became a mother.

When being asked about her weight, Mc Carthy says in an interview with More Mag:

“Parts of my twenties, I was in great shape, but I didn’t appreciate it. If I was a 6 or an 8, I thought, why aren’t I a 2 or a 4? I bought into it-I should be taller, thinner, have better hair, but I think that’s part of being young. Now especially with kids, you lose any sense of time or energy to worry about all the little stuff.”

Being a mother of two, and now a busy actress, Mc Carthy is now focusing more on her acting roles and perfecting her career.

Although Mc Carthy has received negative reviews of not being thin, she brushes it off.

You don’t have to be a size 0 to be beautiful in Hollywood.

Way to go, Mc Carthy!

Get Denise Richards’ Muscular Calves

picstitch-7

Running around the town and after four children are definitely doing Denise Richards justice.

The 42-year old mother of two appeared last week on Good Morning America displaying very muscular calves in a lime green dress as well as looking lean.

Richards sure did not show any stress at all, especially as reports show that she is caring for ex-husband Charlie Sheen’s twin sons with wife Brooke Mueller aside from her own two children. Four kids, maybe that’s where she’s getting the great bod from!

Looking for toned, muscular calves like Denise Richards? We suggest doing calf raises!

If you are also a busy mom like Richards, and don’t have much exercise equipment to use, we advise on doing calf raises. Want something a little more intense add 10-15 lb dumbells in each hand while doing the calf raises.
